Surgical Instrument Cleaners and Supplies
Surgical Instrument Cleaners and Soak Solutions. Surgical instruments should be presoaked or rinsed to prevent drying of blood and to soften or remove blood from the instruments. Washing instruments within a few minutes of surgery prevents blood from drying and is your best defense against corrosion, pitting and staining. Only use approved solutions for washing, disinfecting, and lubricating. Non-approved solutions are any that do not specifically state, "for surgical instruments" on the label.
